Welcome To The Famous Venice Beach Drum Circle!
I knew from the Venice Beach Drum Circle since a while and when you walk around Venice you see and hear street music everywhere and I could record here for hours! But my goal was to find the Drum Circle!
Finally, I could make it and could record this incredible sound for about two hours!
I met very nice and interesting people like Kurt Kelly or Daniel who was one of the Drummers! And thank you again for giving me a ride back to my car at night time!:).
A few other people came up to me and ask me if I record this for a film or movie production! Could be possible if you run around with this kind of equipment around Los Angeles! I always tell them that I travel around the world and start recording sounds for anybody and everybody in this world who needs it and this for free!
The first reaction is Always “WOW”! And if you read this? I really enjoy doing this and it makes me happy!
Venice Beach is clearly a completely different beach than any other beach in this world and not a place where you should hang around at night time!
When you walk around at day time you see so many characters and often times I thought this person would fit perfect in a strange movie!
It is a just a cool area where people roaming around, shopping, jogging, skating, skateboarding and hanging out at the muscle beach where Arnold Schwarzenegger started his career and made this place so famous as well! But also many homeless people. People who sell drugs and do all kind of crazy stuff! So be careful!
And in the middle of all this there is the Venice Beach Drum Circle with these amazing group of artists with their drums, water jugs, cans with sand, guitars or even keyboards who are coming from all across the world to meet and sit in this circle right here every Saturday and Sunday to start playing together this unstructured, or let me say, unorganized music what sounds just wonderful until the sun goes down!
So if you are in Venice on a weekend day walk at the end of Brooks Avenue to the Ocean Front Walk. Then walk along the beach if you still can’t find it, try to listen to the sound of the drums or ask people who are working in the shops! Everybody knows about the drum circle.
If you finally made it, take off your shoes and start dancing!
And look around who is dancing with you because you never know who it could be. Like Sharon Stone for example! She was there just the week before!
Walk 100 meters from this location. That is where I recorded the sound!
The equipment I used to capture the sound and the video + the Software that I used to edit the sound and the videos!
Rycote NTG SuperBlimp
Sony A7s with the Sony Zeiss 24-70mm Lens
Sony MDR7506 Professional Headphones
GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition
Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017
Adobe Audition CC 2017
…and now enjoy the sound!!
You can download the files from my Archive.org Account! The wave file is about 4.2 GB but I broke it up into 7 separate files and each file is 20 minutes long except the last file.
I did this so that you don’t need to download the whole file if you think you find a great part that could fit into your project!
What I also like about archive.org is that it creates automatic FLAC files. These files are even smaller but still provide a great sound quality.
If you use some of the sounds make sure to give credit to the musician from the Venice Beach Drum Circle! Thank you!

If you feel like buying me a coffee that would be really much appreciated. This money goes directly into new equipment and covered the cost of running the site. But in this case, I would give all the money to the Creators of the Venice Beach Drum Circle!
Thank you so much for that!
